It feels like forever until Spring has started but March always brings gorgeous pastel colours and a fresh look all around us.
With Mother's Day upon us shops are filled with some gorgeous gifts for some very important ladies. Maybe you have an expectant wife/girlfriend or even celebrating her first ever mother's day? Or maybe you'd like to express your love and appreciation for strong, female influences in your life. Here at Vamp London we love finding gifts a little unique, as well as some luxurious favourites so take some inspiration for Mum, Wife, Girlfriend, Nan, Step-Mum or Friend:
Most of us can't resist a treat every now and then, so indulge her sugar desires with treats from Ladurée. This beautiful house of French delights is the epitome of fine patisserie and we just can't resist (constantly) browsing their online shop, brimming with gorgeous present ideas - we'll be building our own selection boxes of their infamous macarons. Nom.
Now of course, we can't help but recommend one of our very own - and for the occasion we're choosing the Tree of Life, available in both a necklace and bracelet. The symbolism the Tree of Life represents is overwhelming but for mothers, it's particularly poignant as we look at connections to family, our roots and the more obvious and incredible power of Mother Nature. Accented with sparkling cubic zirconia you can choose from a sleek rhodium finish, warm rose or gleaming yellow gold. Our gorgeous gift wrap is included free of charge, but that's not all! Enter FORMUM at checkout and receive 10% off your entire order (ends 26.03.17). Order by Thursday 23rd March via Special Delivery to get it in time!
Smell the Roses
In the heart of our cosmopolitan capital lies Penhaglion's - a wonderful, mysterious world of scents founded in 1870! This 'scent library', featuring their ten most popular scents, is an adorable introduction to fine fragrances this house of perfume creates and we're certain the lucky recipient won't be able to resist a trip herself!
A trip around Selfridges is always a worthwhile way to spend a few hours, especially when you find this little gem of a coin pouch in amongst the handbags from iconic British brand Mulberry. We love it in 'Macaroon Pink' (of course!) but you can choose from a total of five colours. At £105 we admit it is one of our pricier pressies but we promise it will be loved.
Eau de 'Malone'
There is just no denying the genius of this woman. Did you know she could smell the damp plaster weeks before her ceiling fell in? Unbelievable! And that's why so many of us love her unexpected fragrance combinations. We all have a favourite but Laura - our Sales guru - loves the White Jasmine and Mint candle, she tells us "So often, jasmine can be overpowering but the mint adds freshness, resulting in a light feminine scent which is perfect for home, work...well - anywhere!" Also on the Jo Malone website - with orders over £120 they send you a little gift too, simply enter ENJOY at checkout - you're welcome :)
Charlotte Tilbury's ethos is one we adore and her recent launch of much-loved 'The Queen' matte lipstick has us all besotted. Her web page even shows us how amazing all skin tones look in this colour - which we can't decide is more raspberry or postbox red (But really who cares? It looks effin amazing!). In it's sleek rose gold 'bullet' as Charlotte calls it, it's a must for the vanity dresser - just too pretty for the drawer! A perfect choice for mums who's signature everyday style includes a bold lippy.
Most loved Mesh
If you're after something she can wear everyday with a subtle shimmer of sparkle, we - and many others - would recommend our 'Skinny Mesh' magnetic bracelet and for just £40 it's a steal. Crafted with precision in Italy, the home of our inspiration, the piece is made with 925 sterling silver and available in either rhodium, rose gold or yellow gold plating. You'll also find our signature 'Vamp' engraved on each silver clasp. Here's another idea - shop our under £50 section for a little treat (for you or mum!) and don't forget gift wrap is included free whoever it's for!
